- About Us
This week we went on a fun autumn walk in the garden to look for signs of autumn. The children collected leaves, pinecones, conkers, acorns and berries. I was very impressed that the children noticed the leaves falling off the trees and that they were changing colours.
We used the autumn objects we collected on our walk to do some counting and represented our answers on paper. We have also done some fantastic autumn crafts such as leaf hedgehogs, conker rolling and making playdough hedgehogs.
Our little rays of sunshine this week are River Thompson for doing a fantastic job on our autumn walk. He was also able to recall lots of facts about autumn telling me “the leaves fall off the trees, they change colour” Keep up the great work River! Robbie Cleary as he has really enjoyed learning more about autumn. He especially enjoyed our autumn walk and collected a range of items. I was so impressed when Robbie counted and drew the things he had collected. He told me “I can write my numbers” and proceeded to do so. An excellent week Robbie, well done! Leo Lowes for showing a great interest in writing his name. He has been writing his l for Leo all over. Fantastic writing Leo! And finally Ruben-John Stewart for using more speech during his play and when communicating his needs. He told me he had built a “Car” and did the sound effects when driving it along the bridge. Keep up the great work Ruben!
The children have been very excited to share their adventures with Bella bear to their key worker groups. It sounds like Bella has had so much fun driving go karts, horse riding, baking and going to Mcdonalds. Thank you to everyone who has taken such good care of Bella, she cannot wait to visit more children soon!
We have had lots of fun in our PE sessions with Mrs Thompson. This week we have been doing some brilliant climbing and balancing along the gym benches. Some of the children were even brave enough to do a big jump from the very tall bench! It has been fantastic to see the children becoming more independent and everyone tries so hard to put on their own socks and shoes. Maybe you could practice this at home too?
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Jude Johnson has been chosen as one of our little rays of sunshine this week as he always comes into nursery with a smile. He also did so well following instructions to play our musical instruments loudly and quietly. Great work Jude! Holly Symcox for showing great interest in shapes this week. She has pointed out shapes in nursery, found shapes in the water, completed shape patterns on the whiteboard and also found some time to make some fantastic shape pictures. She has been a little shape superstar, well done Holly! Lachlan Connor for his brilliant speech work. He was great at following instructions and finding the swords on the different body parts. We then swapped roles and Lachlan told me where to look. It is great to hear you putting more words together when talking Lachlan! And finally Amelia Davies for her growing confidence each day. It has been fantastic to see Amelia engaging with activities and speaking to the nursery staff. I am super proud of you Amelia!
It was lovely to see so many parents attend our stay and play sessions and we hope you enjoyed exploring the nursery unit with your children. We would like to say a huge thank you all for coming! Thanks to your generous donations we raised £45 which will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
This week in nursery we read “The Colour Monster” The poor monster's feelings were all mixed up so we helped him to sort his feelings into colours and put them in the jar. The children then had a go at putting their feelings in the jar and talked about what makes them happy, sad or angry. We have also been doing some brilliant listening at our Teddy Bears picnic. The children had to listen carefully and follow instructions to make sure that the animals had the right cutlery and the correct items of food.
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Evelyn Goundry as she has been really interested in maths. She told me she was the “measuring girl” and that her picture was long. Super work Evie! Ashton Allerton for doing such a fantastic job sorting his feelings into a jar. He confidently told me what makes him happy, scared and angry. Keep up the great work Ashton! Mya Carr for doing some fantastic building with the shapes. She made a house with a “pointy roof, a long doggy door and a big dog” You blew my socks of Mya! And finally Hallie Ashurst as her confidence is growing week by week. She joins in with all our activities and was a superstar at yoga. Well done Hallie!
This week we have started our topic All About Me. We have loved looking in the mirrors to see what we look like. Some of the children are beginning to recognise that they look similar or different to their friends. We then painted some fantastic self-portraits!
We have also been talking about our family and who lives in our house. We had lots more crafty fun drawing pictures of our family and our pets.
We would just like to remind you all of our Macmillan Coffee Stay and Play sessions next week. For the children who attend nursery on an afternoon session the stay and play will be held on Tuesday 25th September at 1:30pm. The children who attend nursery for a morning session can attend on Friday 28th September at 10:30am. If your child attends nursery for 30 hours per week you can attend either or both sessions. We look forward to seeing you all there!
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Daniel Clark for settling so well into his new key worker group. I am very proud of you Daniel, you are such a confident little boy! Skye Johnson as she is beginning to settle into the rules and routines of nursery life. Each day Skye has less tears when leaving her mam. I'm very proud of you Skye! Scarlett Charles for doing some fantastic number recognition. When shown a number she understood how many monkeys she needed in the bed. Keep up the great work Scarlett! And finally Zac Cooper for practising his pencil control when writing his name and drawing his family. Zac you impressed me so much, your name and picture was fantastic. Keep practising Zac!
This week we have continued to embed the rules and routines of nursery life. It has been fantastic to see everybody forming friendships and working together.
We are also very pleased to see lots of the children sharing and taking it in turns. Next week we will begin our topic “All about me” and are looking forward to learning lots more about our new friends.
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Ivy Hendry as her imagination never ceases to amaze me.

We would also like to say a huge well done to all of our new starters. Although there were a few tears the children have settled well into their new key worker groups. It is fantastic to see the children are confident enough to explore the nursery independently and are taking everything in their stride! Well done everybody!
